    Would you still feel there is a higher power greater than yourself?

      I will answer this from personal experience. 

      Before I knew there was a bible, a Christian or any other particular religious belief system I knew that God existed.

      I recall at a very young age understanding innately that God existed.

      Not in a fairy tale Santa Claus and Fairy kind of way but in a very conscious way.  I can't explain.  I can only tell you I just knew God existed.

      I was not raised in a Christian home.

      Religions are at their base the expressions of human beings for something we all innately understand.

      I probably answered the question already.

      Yes I would know that there is a higher power greater than myself like all human beings know. With or without text.

        Wow this really makes me wish that ThoughPolice had not been perma-banned. He would have had some great things to say here.

    I believe in the possibility too ...regardless of text. smile

    However I know how it means a great deal to some.

      And that is why I have become a kinder, gentler paradigmsearch in regards to the religion forums. smile
